back to before the obama administration. is washington going to do, if anything, to answer andrew's question? the stock market going up, things improving and incremental ways richard said on a daily basis. anything washington feels need to be done to deal with the slow growth that has been around a long time? >> i wish i could be really optimistic. i'm not. i've been pessimistic this last while, despite the optimism of some colleagues about any sort of grand bargain. i'm certainly pessimistic about anything specifically trying to jump-start the economy, anything specifically that is a big enough debt deal to have big impact. i think we are going to bump along. i think we will bump through the next two near crises and then slide into spring and summer hoping that things slowly continue to get better for the foreseeable future. >> i'll be more skeptical which i actually worry that we are going to start seeing little trembles from the sequester and see it in the economic numbers and you'll see headlines, by the way, that is then going to scare the markets and you sort of have a littl
to get washington working? if obama is president for another four years, i guess vote democrat to make the house sways back. is that a credible portion of the electorate? >> i think you will find that voters frequently try to express a dissatisfaction. and normally the way they do that is by voting against the incumbent party. and sam, in the house of representatives, that would be the republicans. and so if you were trying to vote anti gridlock in the next congressional election, it seems that would be an anti republican -- >> you know, i might be the only one in d.c. who thinks this, but i have -- >> that's why you're here. >> this is new york. >> for the speech you're about to make. >> i do believe that over time sequestration is going to cause so much pain in these districts that the party that's most associated with it will face electoral consequences. and that happens to be in this case the republican party. and i think they know it, too, which is why they have gone through this painstaking technique of saying it was obama's idea. because they want him to take some of the blame a
jump protocol and invite the young man to washington for a dinner and sit down and have obama talked to him or the secretary of state man to man. all they can do is say no. all good questions. have you been back to north korea? host: he is gone. sorry about that. as our calller looked across, he would have found north of rio was probably more prosperous than self reappear yen since that time, south korea has become a success story. north korea is still back in the time warp of 1965. so it is different on the korean peninsula now than it did then. i think that obviously has an impact on the situation we're dealing with. i do not know whether kim jong- un speaks english. i do not think others have met him. i suppose he studied english at least during the brief time he was in school in switzerland. i would not be surprised if he knows some english. question of china providing what north korea needs actually needs to be turned around. i think many of us think that china has been too indulgent of north korea and so willing to provide food, fuel, and other kinds of assistance that it has e

a overlooking. >> chris: no doubt. [ laughter ] >> i just have to get that in. obama runs in 2008 as a man who is going to change our politics. he is only going to implement new ideas. he is going to change the way washington works. and the essence of the corruption he was attacking was the money. so, number one, in 2008, he is the first who refuses public financing for his campaign. he raises a billion dollars. and now what he is doing, he is campaigning, look where he is in the third of the month in the second term, if there is ever a time in the 8 years when you would relax on the money and try to govern, it would be at this point. what he has done completely in contradiction to what he promised as a candidate in 2008, he institutionalized the permanent campaign. evidence is out there raising money at the beginning of the second term when he ought to be here working on the budget on sequester and all these other issues. but now he is the essence of exactly the system that he denounced and he promised he would messianicly redeem. >> chris: let me ask you about that marah and then we will go

debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan

the united states can learn. but, first, here's my take. it's a given that washington is broken. that the two parties seem incapable of coming together to get things done. but here is something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a signal accomplishment of his presidency, end the war on terror. for the first time since 9/11, an administration official sketched out a possible end point. jay johnson, the then general council for the pentagon saidine a recent speech to the oxford union that as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will come a tipping point that so many leaders of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed and captures such as al qaeda as we know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point he said our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest period that the united states has lived in such a situation. longer than the civil war, world war one or world war ii. it grants the president and the federal government extraordinary authority, effecti

with presidents. if there was a stigma you wouldn't see michelle obama at the oscars. i think this stigma mass gone away with this presidency. but the reality is, you know, you see a spike in the celebrity in washington, d.c. you've seen a spike in celebrity coming to washington, d.c. the fact that "tmz" is talking about barbara walters is more in their wheel house, they talk about paul ryan, they talk about president obama, they talk about michelle obama. there are so many outlets that traditionally have no interest in washington because washington is traditionally thought of as boring and stale. but the sex appeal for better or worse, in the past four years has significantly upticked. >> from politico this evening, from the click column people watching in washington, d.c., the head library is that the daughter of senator mccain gets a tv show. we go to glen. >> thank you very much. i want to say about the comment about the appearance of politicians and that kind of thing. one, i guess that means the old chi shea that politics is -- hee shea that politics is show business. i kind of disagree
obama couldn't get climate change through a democratic congress a few years ago. the regulations on climate change are coming. everyone in washington is gearing up for us. people in congress, lobbyists. there could be court challenges, basically couldn't get it done through congress. so he will do it administratively through regulation. bill: environmentalists love this. >> yeah. bill: this is what they believe will reduce smog all over america. >> that's correct. bill: politically though, does it sell? >> i think it will be very difficult and here's why, bill. because there is some democrats from red states, also from oil and gas states, mary landrieu who is up for re-election in 2014. mark begich from alaska will be outspoken on this. and there will be effort on any climate change regulations that republicans and democrats will team up and try to overturn these regulations. now, it could pass the house, probably not the senate. and obama would veto it, that will put pressure on the white house especially when the economy is so fragile. i think the obama administration is going
not reached washington yet. >> john: you look at what happened last week in this country with marriage equality. if the people lead, the leaders will follow. people were for it before barack obama came out for it as well. i want to ask you sam then you, colin how do you grade the president's speeches? we haven't heard specific critiques about the up-or-down vote he demanded in the state of the union ain't gonna happen. >> i'm not convinced it isn't going to happen. there will be a lot of amendments and there's a question as to what bill is going to make it to the floor. that seems to change on a daily basis. i think he's right to push this call for giving a vote because there's a lot of electeds who don't want to take the vote. they're worried about it. that means that if there is a vote, they'll feel a lot of pressure to vote in favor of some type of legislation. but -- so i think it is early to grade the president. i think in this instance, i don't think he's doing such a bad job. he's going out to connecticut. he's going out to the country. he's taking it to the people. and so i thi

president obama launched a plan for job creation. business start up apps was fast tracked but now there are concerns that it blazed through washington nobody noticed any flaws. brenda buttner, anchor of "bulls and bears", so were there flaws? >> yes. there were flaws. it went really fast and nobody has any measure, did it create jobs? they just love the name. was a great thing. first thing, it allows hedge funds basically to market email and internet, facebook to more unsophisticated investors. they haven't been able to do that up to this point. it has a thing called crowd funding which mean that people could be the target of bogus internet scams or frauds. they think as small investors buy a part of company. there is some fear that is also a problem. it also temporarily allows some smaller firms to skirt accounting or disclosure rules when they are going public. the idea is let these small companies go public and they will create jobs, but there is no empirical evidence that happens just because something goes public. >> gregg: did anything good happen out of it? >> well, it show
